Today’s Sermon – Jesus Our Only Foundation  

1 Corinthians 2:1-5

And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.[a] For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.

1 Corinthians is a letter from Paul encouraging, teaching, and nurturing the Church of Corinth. Paul had heard of problems in the Corinthian Church. Paul’s letter to the Church was intened to Encourage Believers in their Faith and Walk with Jesus

[-] The Church of Corinth was losing its foundation in Jesus

[-] Divisions within the Church, Jealousy, Lack of Discipline, Sexual Immorality


Acts 18 – Luke is writing about Paul’s Mission to Corinth


The Gospel Saves Us and Sustains Us.


[-] A humble beginning Vs 1-3 – Trust in God’s Power Alone

            No Eloquence or Human Wisdom

            Absolute Dependence on God

            Paul appreciated the task at hand

                        [-] Paul proclaimed the Gospel

                        [-] The Gospel rests on the Power of God

                        [-] The Gospel of Jesus is Paul’s foundation


[-] A Life Changing Resolution Vs 2

            What is the Gospel

            The Gospel must be Our Foundation

            The Gospel Saves and it Sustains

            Matthew 6:21 – Jesus said - 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

            [-] Where is our treasure?


[-] A Powerful Witness – Vs 4-5 We need to Practice an Unselfish Release

            Christians are proof of the Gospel

            New Creation in Jesus

            Rest on and in Christ Alone

            Connect the Dots in Paul’s Writing

                        Testimony about God

                        Jesus Christ and Him Crucified

                        Power of God
